Barn Swallows

Thanks to Katie and Ashley’s knowledge and internet-searching skills, we now know the exact species of our little bird-neighbors! They are Barn Swallows. I found this photo and tons of information about them on Wikipedia.

You ladies are awesome! I tried to find out what they were to no avail, so it’s nice to find out a little more about them! Apparently, they are busy nesting right now so hopefully there will be some babies soon. I will keep you updated!


  1. I'm not going to lie... I'm a bit of a bird fanatic. I even have my own bird identifying manual. I didn't need it for the barn swallows though. Those are old friends from my childhood!

    I also have a growing collection of bird photos I've taken... yup, all I'm missing are the binoculars. I even have a bird sweater that a friend bought me as a joke for my b-day. :)

  2. That's awesome! I was amazed that you knew, I had no clue how to even begin the search!

    So, you don't wear the bird sweater to work? *smile*

  3. NO! Definitely don't wear the bird sweater to work! :) I can't imagine the looks I'd get if I sported that to work on Monday.

    You're getting some nice close photos of these little guys!
